ESL Interjections Board Game - Reading, Listening and Speaking Activity - Elementary (A1-A2) - 25 minutes

In this fun interjections board game, students race to check off interjections from a list by using them appropriately in sentences. Give each group of three or four a copy of the game board, a dice and counters. Each player writes their name above one of the checklists on the game board. Players begin by placing their counters on the start square. The players then take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board in any direction. Players can turn and double back as desired. If a player passes either of the 'Teleport' squares, they can jump to the opposite side of the board. Teleporting uses up one move, so if a player rolled a five and used the teleport, they would only move a total of four squares. When a player lands on a gap-fill sentence square, they complete the sentence with one of the interjections from their list. If the sentence is correct, as judged by the other group members, the player checks off the interjection on their list. If students are unsure, they can ask you for the answer. The first player to check off all the interjections on their list wins the game.

Interjections Race

ESL Interjections Game - Reading, Matching, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this free interjections activity, students play a game where they race to match interjections with sentences. Divide the students into two groups (A and B) and give each student a corresponding worksheet. Working with another member of their group, the students match each interjection on their worksheet with an appropriate meaning. Afterwards, review the correct answers with each group. Next, each student pairs up with someone from the other group. The students then take it in turns to read the sentences on their worksheet to their partner who has to find and provide a suitable interjection to begin each sentence. If both students agree it's correct, the student writes the interjection before the sentence. If not, the student asks their partner for other suggestions. The race continues until all the sentences on both worksheets have been matched with an interjection. When a pair thinks they have finished, they put up their hands. If their answers are correct, they win. If not, the race continues to find a winner. All the pairs should continue until they have matched all the interjections. Finally, go through the correct answers with the class.

Common Interjections

ESL Interjections Worksheet - Reading, Matching, Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

This engaging interjections worksheet helps students to learn and practice some interjections that are commonly used in the English language. Give each student a copy of the two-page worksheet. The students begin by reading about interjections and their uses. Next, the students match interjections with sentence halves. The students then move on to match each interjection with its correct use. Next, the students work with a partner and compare the interjections with words used in their own language to express the same feelings and emotions shown in Exercise B to see if they are the same or different. The students also discuss other interjections they use to express feelings and emotions. Afterwards, review the students' answers as a class. After that, the students begin each sentence with a suitable interjection from a box. In the last exercise, students write down eight interjections from the worksheet and create a suitable following sentence for each one. Afterwards, they read their sentences to a partner, without saying the interjection to see if they can guess what it is.

Interjections Bingo

ESL Interjections Game - Reading and Listening Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 20 minutes

In this interjections game, students play bingo by matching interjections with sentences. Divide the students into groups of 12 and give each student in the group a bingo card. You may wish to take on the role of the bingo caller yourself, or have an extra student take on the roll per group. You or a student then reads a sentence at random from the caller's sheet, saying the word 'blank' where the interjection should be and putting a tick next to the sentence to show it has been read out. The students look at their bingo cards. If they have a suitable interjection that can go in the place of the ‘blank’, they cross it off. The game continues until a student has crossed off all the interjections on their card. When this happens, the student shouts 'Bingo!' The student then reads out the interjections they crossed off. If they match with the sentences that were ticked on the caller's sheet, the student wins the game. Play several rounds, making sure students receive a different bingo card each time. If you have a large class or want to give students more practice with the interjections, have the students play the game in groups of four with students taking it in turns to be the bingo caller.
